Connecticut Spring & Stamping Redesigns Website

Wednesday, September 2, 2015
 
Connecticut Spring & Stamping (CSS), Farmington, CT, has launched a redesigned website, www.ctspring.com. The site has been upgraded with a modern look and an enhanced user experience, allowing visitors to locate information on the company’s capabilities and products ranging from machined stampings to fineblanked components and assemblies.
Notable new features include a company overview video located throughout the website to provide an instant view into some of CSS’ key machinery, capabilities and products; and more streamlined and intuitive navigation and organization of content.
“We are always looking for new ways of using the website to provide information that helps engineers and manufacturers achieve their design objectives,” says Steve Dicke, CSS vice president of sales and marketing. “The new website reflects CSS’ commitment to and investment in continuous improvement, highlighting our engineering support from design and prototype stages through short-run or high-volume production of precision parts.” 

Hydrotech Expanding Ohio HQ, Donates to Tech School

Monday, August 31, 2015
 
Hydrotech, Inc., a provider of fluid-power and motion-automation products, announced that it is undergoing a 23,000-sq.-ft. expansion to its headquarters in West Chester, OH, a suburb of Cincinnati. The expansion is necessary, according to company officials, as Hydrotech has grown 14 percent per year since 2010, including hiring 35 people in the past five years with 10 more to be added before the end of 2015. The expansion is set to be completed by year’s end.
As part of groundbreaking ceremonies, Hydrotech announced a donation of four new hydraulic training stands to Cincinnati State Technical and Community College. The training assemblies, valued at $30,000 per unit, will be used by students in Cincinnati State’s Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technologies program. This marks the second major donation of lab equipment by Hydrotech to Cincinnati State in the past year. In 2014, the company donated pneumatic training stands to the same program at the college.
Hydrotech currently holds 26 patents for various fluid-power and motion-automation products within the industrial-manufacturing industry, including a new monitoring device that plans to introduce an Internet of Things approach to preventive machine maintenance. For more, visit www.hydrotech.com.

New Magazine Covers 3D-Metal-Printing Technology

Thursday, August 27, 2015
 
The Precision Metalforming Association (PMA), in partnership with MecklerMedia , has announced the launch of 3D Metal Printing magazine. With its first issue slated for spring 2016, 3D Metal Printing will target designers, engineers, executives and others working in the aerospace, automotive, tooling, medical and other industries where applications for metal additive manufacturing promise to rapidly expand.
“The pace of change in this industry is unbelievably rapid,” says Andrew Flando, publisher of 3D Metal Printing and vice president of publishing and expositions at PMA. “Manufacturers continue to find ways to use 3D metal printing to create complex parts in a way that increases efficiency and allows them to quickly deliver new products to market.”
“The use of additive-manufacturing services grew by 40 percent in 2014,” adds Alan Meckler, chairman and CEO of MecklerMedia, quoting recent industry surveys. MecklerMedia produces the Inside 3D Printing tradeshow and conference--the largest professional 3D printing and additive manufacturing event worldwide.
“We know that the use of 3D metal printing to manufacture end-use parts will increase dramatically during the next three years,” continues Meckler. “That’s why we’re excited to partner with PMA to launch this new publication.”
Meckler’s point is reinforced by a new market survey released by Stratasys, finding that by 2018 additive manufacturing of end-use parts is predicted to increase by 38 percent.
“Metals are the fastest-growing segment of 3D printing,” adds Flando, “with printer sales growing by 48 percent and material sales growing by 32 percent in 2014. And, the adoption of 3D metal printing is expected to nearly double by 2018.
“This new publication will be a critical resource,” continues Flando, “to help designers, engineers and others working in manufacturing stay up to date on the latest 3D metal-printing technology.”
